What happened to thunderbird


#1

Thunderbird this morning stop working on my computer. I tried to reinstall it but it also desappeared from the list of the available apps!
What happened with that?


#2

Thunderbird Flatpak has been discontinued


#3

Thunderbird has been removed from Flathub, as there is currently no one who maintains it’s flatpak:

From the commit logs, it seems that someone immediately started working on the package again (last commit from yesterday), so probably it will be back in a short time. In the meantime you can grab the build manifest from github and build it for yourself:

Download:

git clone https://github.com/flathub/org.mozilla.Thunderbird.git
cd org.mozilla.Thunderbird
git submodule init
git submodule update

Build:

flatpak-builder --force-clean --install-deps-from=flathub build org.mozilla.Thunderbird.json

Install:

flatpak-builder --repo "repo" build org.mozilla.Thunderbird.json
flatpak remote-add --user --no-gpg-verify thunderbird-repository repo
flatpak install --user  thunderbird-repository org.mozilla.Thunderbird
